Hopetoun Falls Apollo Bay
Hopetoun Falls are in a beautiful tranquil setting. Just a short drive from Apollo Bay, Hopetoun Falls is located within the magnificent Otway Ranges. The falls can be viewed from a platform up above. But, to get the best possible view there is a steep man made track to the base of the falls.
Hopetoun Falls Walking Track.
This is a steep walk down to the base viewing platform. The walkis about 200-300 meters down paths and stairs that have hand rails. The walk is through tunnels of ferns and native plants typically of what you find in a rainforest. On a warm summers day this is a cool place. At the base of the track you can view the water falls from about 30 meters. It doesnt say you can but people do climb over the platform onto the rocks to get a closer look. There is something magical about water cascading over a cliff and into a clean body of water. There s a large fallen tree truck across the base and green moss covered rocks. It is said a playpus lives in the pool ov water. Walking back to the top can be very exhausting. You should take water and take breaks every 40 meters.
